THAT WHICH I SHOULD HAVE DONE I DID NOT DO
HOW I MET IVAN ALBRIGHT
The blog link above is from an artist I follow, Cindy Michaud.
I would be very interested in what you think of this painting and Magic Realism as a whole. Please read what I have said here and comment below.
When I'm studying a famous painting, I like to examine the complete work, taking into account the size and accordingly the impact of it's presence. I then zoom in and study detail and brushwork. I google to find different images and get various versions of the colour palette (many internet images are very poor in their representation of paintings).
I think it's important to get my own analysis and views down before I read those of another person. Then and only then, I read the impressions of other viewers and Art historians. I recommend trying the same process and I think you will find it an enriching experience.

I was thinking about doors and remembered that I have this lovely Tree Ornament with a decorated holiday door. It comes with a gold ribbon hanger. It certainly has a different feel the Albrights door. It is part of my Tree Ornament collection.
